Bill Simmons knows how to handle accidental plagiarism

As a Tigers fan and RotoTimes writer, I don't think I'm supposed to like Aaron Gleeman, who blogs about the Twins and writes for RotoWorld. But to hell with rivalries, the guy knows how to write, and I've been a regular reader of his site for the past year. He recounts a funny anecdote today: someone submitted a portion of his column as a question to Bill Simmons' recent mailbag. Simmons discovered it was lifted only after the column was published, at which point he edited the mailbag to provide attribution and then fired off an email to personally apologize to Aaron. The funny thing? All of this happened before Aaron even realized his material was lifted. Hey Scoop, you taking notes?
